    ...she's living completely inside her own mind, frenetically pacing the hallways of a vast sand castle she's built in there, unable to meaningfully communicate with the human beings on the other side of the moat, who are all presumed to be enemies.

      She's trying to look like June Cleaver, but she actually looks like the T2 skeleton posing for a passport photo.

        one-liners in the recent history of political punditry:

        The world's most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.
        Blount is a stocky, stubby-fingered Southerner with glasses and a pale, pinched face — if Norman Rockwell had ever done a painting titled "Small-Town Accountant Taking Enormous Dump," it would look just like Blount. LeCroy, his sugar daddy at JP Morgan, is a tall, bloodless, crisply dressed corporate operator with a shiny bald head and silver side patches — a cross between Skeletor and Michael Stipe.
        This [democracy] is a very different thing from shopping, which involves passively letting sitcoms melt your brain all day long and then jumping straight into the TV screen to buy a Southern-Style Chicken Sandwich because the slob singing "I'm Lovin' It!" during the commercial break looks just like you.

        And while the Great Derangement, published in 2008, has been overtaken by events -- Taibbi then thought that the insane political polarization of the Bush years had finally been laid to rest -- it's still an entertaining romp through the bizarreness of the religious right.

        Nothing requires a greater effort of thought than arguments to justify the rule of non-thought. -- Milan Kundera
